Pelosi: House Will Draft Articles of Impeachment

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that the House will move forward in drafting articles of impeachment against the President of the United States.

In doing so, Pelosi feigned concern for the country.

“Our democracy is what is at stake,” she claimed. “The president leaves us no choice but to act.”

Earlier in the day, President Trump laid down the gauntlet, urging Pelosi and the Democrats to ramp up the impeachment process so it can move on to a more legitimate trial in the Senate.

The President fired off an early-morning tweet, saying “if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our country can get back to business.”

It would seem both parties want this to happen.

The Associated Press reported that Pelosi addressed the Democrat caucus Wednesday evening and asked, “Äre you ready?”

The response from a resistance party who have been anxiously anticipating the day when they could finally impeach President Trump responded with “a resounding yes.”

Doesn’t Want The American People to Decide

By announcing the drafting of articles of impeachment, Pelosi is moving forward as swiftly as possible to stain the reputation of President Trump.

The AP reports: “Democrats are charging toward a Christmastime vote on removing the 45th president, a situation Pelosi hoped to avoid but which now seems inevitable.”

Alleging Pelosi had hoped to avoid all of this is to blatantly ignore reality. Despite her words and speeches, she has been forced into action ever since the Squad came on the scene and started running the show. And she’s been all-too-willing to placate that unhinged base – a base she is more concerned about than the majority of level-headed Americans.

“The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide,’” Pelosi said in a memo to her colleagues last month. “That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.”

Got that? Letting Trump get to the next election unscathed would be dangerous because the American people can’t be trusted with their vote.

RNC Responds

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel issued a statement slamming Pelosi for abusing the power of the House and trying to overturn the 2016 election.

“The Founders began the Constitution with ‘We the People’ for a reason,” McDaniel said. “Pelosi wants to negate the votes of 63 million Americans, all while denying President Trump due process. It is the ultimate abuse of power, and all the more reason why Republicans must take back the House and re-elect President Trump in 2020.”

Pelosi herself seems to agree.

 

On December 18th, 1998, as the House was set to impeach former President Bill Clinton for tangible and provable crimes of perjury and obstruction of justice, Pelosi railed against the process as being based solely on hatred for the sitting President.

“Today the Republican majority is not judging the president with fairness, but impeaching him with a vengeance,” Pelosi argued. “We are here today because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton, and until the Republicans free themselves of that hatred our country will suffer.”

It’s quite clear the Democrats now hold an undeniable hatred of our country, an undeniable hatred of this President, and an undeniable hatred of due process.

Republicans must never forget this day. If a Democrat wins the White House in 2020 or 2024 or any other year down the line, they must be harassed and investigated from the very day they set foot in the Oval Office.

George Conway Rips First Lady Melania Trump

By David Kamioner | December 5, 2019

George Conway, husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, is at it again in his never-ending low blows against the Trump administration.

This time, George Conway is criticizing first lady Melania Trump for protecting her own son, young Barron Trump, against an out-of-bounds remark made Wednesday by Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan during the House Judiciary Committee’s live, televised impeachment hearing on Capitol Hill.

Professor Karlan, to near-universal revulsion, referenced the president’s son in a bad pun made at the child’s expense.

Children, by common political agreement, as well as families, are civilians and thus not to be targeted by political smears.

Karlan, under the glare of the camera lights, chose to ignore that prohibition — and now George Conway is springing to her indirect defense.

This tweet from Conway highlights his petulant nonchalance toward the incident.

“So no one should be pretending that the president and his supporters weren’t using his youngest son today to distract from his crimes,” said Conway.

It remains to be seen how the president or his supporters are “using” Barron Trump when a partisan Democrat witness — not they — brought up the young teenager in the first place.

After Karlan made her heinous remarks, the first lady, like a lioness enraged, defended her son in this comment.

This latest comment by George Conway is unfortunately just another in a series of tweets and broadsides by him against President Donald Trump and his administration.

These broadsides have been getting more overwrought as of late and definitely personal, given his indirect tie to the administration.

With this latest outburst, he dials the 1-10 meter up to 11 and seems to be going out of his way to use any pretext, no matter how petty, to go after the president.

The president himself, by the way, has strongly criticized George Conway in the past for his comments, even calling him “a whack job” not long ago.

Conway, it seems, is deliberately making himself a cardboard villain in the Trump saga.

To this analyst, at least, his words and actions are so over the top, so obviously insincerely manufactured, that they’re reminiscent of the classic comment, “Methinks the lady doth protest too much.”

The question is: Why?

Putting aside a legitimate ideological disagreement, as that is rarely the issue in D.C., what does George Conway gain from this campaign to abuse the president — and now the first lady? Yes, credibility with the Dems and the Left toward a future reward, perhaps.

But he could have received that for far less controversial comments on behalf of the Left.

So what’s he up to, really?

The answer to that query has become a popular parlor game in some D.C. circles.

No matter what the proper response is, one can be pretty sure Conway will continue his slander campaign for the immediate future.

However, by setting himself up as such an easy character to hate for Trump supporters, and by providing a backlash of sympathy for the president every time he speaks, Conway is actually helping President Trump paint his enemies with a broad and exceedingly negative brush — something Conway undoubtedly already knows.

Nancy Pelosi announces that House will draft articles of impeachment against Donald Trump

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appeared on Capitol Hill Thursday morning to announce next steps in the impeachment of Donald J. Trump. Pelosi began by reviewing some of the same historical foundations for impeachment that were covered in the Wednesday hearings before the House Judiciary Committee. She then provided a brief overview of the public hearings held before the Intelligence Committee, calling those who answered congressional subpoenas to appear “true patriots.” 

“The president leaves us no choice but to act, because he has engaged once again in an abuse of power,” said Pelosi. She then announced that she was asking for Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to proceed with articles of impeachment against Trump.

The brief statement makes it clear that there are not going to be further lengthy hearings in the House; instead, articles will be drawn up for a vote before the full House. It appears that the House will complete the business of impeaching Trump before the Christmas break. It’s likely that the House Judiciary Committee will have an open session next week in which the evidence will be reviewed and the articles will be formally submitted before the matter moves to the full House.

At that point, the action will move to a trial in the Senate, where Republicans will have control of the process.
